Having been in the family for almost 70 years, selling their much-loved Aberdeen home was not an easy decision for Joan and Ian MacMaster.
Situated in the West End of the city, the three-bedroom upper-floor flat boasts an array of impressive period features and modern accommodation spanning three floors.
Retired teacher Joan and her former paperworker husband Ian, both 71, have relished the years spent in 77 Beechgrove Terrace.
“The property has been in the family since it was purchased in 1951,” said Joan.
“It’s always had a wide range of appeal because there’s so much it has to offer, including it’s convenient location.
“And although it retains a lot of original features, we have had a couple of renovation projects.
“We made the addition of the loft room with an en-suite bathroom, which would make a fantastic space for any youngster or if you have people coming to stay.”
